Product Description
Sonnets Lesson Plan: Students can stomp it, shout it, and get the beat while grappling with the challenge of iambic pentameter in Sonnets: Critique & Create. This set of lessons, guides, and handouts provides detailed instructions for the analysis and writing of a Shakespearean sonnet. Students practice using extended metaphors, rhythm, and argumentation as they fit their ideas into the quatrain and couplet format.

Step-by-step plans take five or six days to complete and are aligned to CCSS. I find it helpful to teach sonnets each year before introducing a Shakespeare play. Students gain confidence in understanding the language, form, and rhythm of his work.

What’s included?

• 24 pages of detailed lessons with engaging activities, student guides, and worksheets
• Templates for reading and writing iambic pentameter
• Printable iambic pentameter poster (Check out the large version of this poster!)
